FC Basel coach Marcel Koller may well be removed from his post after traveling to Nicosia for the match against APOEL in the first leg of the Europa League round of 16 tonight (from 8:40 pm on RTS Deux ) and the arrival of Servette FC on Sunday on behalf of the championship.
It remains for the Zurich to care for his exit with a beautiful European journey. Koller’s “chance” is to face a team that is also swimming in doubt. APOEL has already operated … 4 changes at the head of its first team in the past 12 months.
An adversary difficult to maneuver
But despite the turmoil it can go through, APOEL remains a difficult opponent in Nicosia. So this summer, he held Ajax in check (0-0) during the play-offs in the Champions League before beating Sevilla FC 1-0 in December during the group stage of the Europa League.

Edon Zhegrova on the side
A heavy blow for Basel but also for Kosovo by Bernard Challandes! Edon Zhegrova injured his thigh and will have to rest for a month. He will be one of the big four absent from the Rhine with Luca Zuffi, Kevin Bua and Ricky van Wolfswinkel. In addition, its presence for the Euro 2020 barrage that Kosovo will deliver on March 26 in Skopje against North Macedonia is questioned.
